The Motown inspired song received a positive reception from music critics, but failed to chart on the German Top 50. In fall 2005 Benaissa went on tour as supporting act for Simply Red. Afterwards she prepared the release of her second single "Ich Hab Dich", which was chosen to represent Hesse on the 2nd Bundesvision Song Contest. Nadja eventually finished fourth with 104 points, while the single entered a moderate #36 on the German singles chart. Two weeks later Schritt Für Schritt saw its minor succeeded release.
In June 2006 Nadja participated into another non-profit-making aid project, when she provided vocals for a Fury in the Slaughterhouse cover, "Won't Forget These Days", released over the course of the 2006 FIFA World Cup. Although Benaissa was finishing touches on her yet-to-be-titled second studio album with producers DJ Release, Audiotreats and Monroe and preparing its release for February 2007, the singer decided to shelve upcoming plans for her solo career in favour of a reunion of the No Angels in early 2007. However, according to her official Myspace she's looking for a release when everything around the band has become "calmer" ... On April 11th she was arrested because of the urgent suspicion that she had sexual intercourse with three people without telling them that she was HIV-positive. At least one person later tested HIV-positive. In case of a conviction she will have to spend up to ten years in prison on the charge of grievous bodily harm.
